Los Angeles, CA – Cher’s attempt to petition for a conservatorship for her son, Elijah Blue Allman, has hit a roadblock. On Friday, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Jessica A. Uzcategui ruled that Cher’s legal team made an error by submitting their filings just two days before the hearing, depriving Allman and his attorneys of sufficient time to review them. As a result, a new hearing has been scheduled for January 29.
According to court documents obtained by Page Six, Cher has expressed concerns about her son’s “severe mental health and substance abuse issues” that could impede his ability to handle his own finances. Allman, however, disagrees with the need for a conservatorship. He claims that he is currently receiving professional treatment and regularly attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, and that his mother would be unfit to oversee such an arrangement.
In a filing, Allman stated, “While I understand that my mother believes she is looking out for my best interests and I appreciate her love and support, I do not need her unsolicited help or support at this time.” He also argued that his wife, Marieangela King, would be a more suitable choice for conservator, should it become necessary.
Allman’s situation is further complicated by his recent attempt to halt his divorce proceedings with King. Both Allman and King have filed to reconcile, leading him to believe that his wife should have priority as conservator, if needed.
It is worth noting that Allman receives funds from a trust left to him by his late father, musician Gregg Allman. Despite the ongoing legal battle between Cher and Allman, he has expressed his willingness to submit to drug tests.
The judge’s decision to postpone the conservatorship hearing underscores the importance of adhering to proper filing procedures. The new hearing date will give Allman and his attorneys sufficient time to review the documents and present their case.
In summary, Cher’s attempt to establish a conservatorship for her son, Elijah Blue Allman, has been delayed due to a technical error in the filing process. Allman, who claims to be actively seeking treatment and attending support meetings, opposes the conservatorship and believes his wife would be a more appropriate choice. The new hearing, scheduled for January 29, will provide all parties involved with the opportunity to present their arguments effectively.
